The current owner, High Ridge Real Estate Owner, is seeking to change the zoning laws to allow them to demolish a portion of the complex.
Local preservationists, Stamford residents, and the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office have spoken up for the office park’s significance and voiced their concerns with the High Ridge Real Estate’s request. The City of Stamford Zoning Board is planning on hearing the owner’s application on March 26th.
